President's Message - January 2013

Dear Guild Members,

As the old year winds down, your guild board has been making preparations for 2013 with new and exciting activities!

The theme for next year is CONNECTIONS. Why a theme? Why CONNECTIONS?  Here’s why: Last year, the size of our guild exploded with many new members - which is great!  Within the membership is a wealth of acquired quilt knowledge and expertise.  This knowledge needs to be shared with both old and new members. There are a number of extremely talented, interesting individuals to meet and get to know better. The question is how do we accomplish this?  The answer is by making new connections! I hope that each of you will “connect” by actively joining with your fellow members in efforts to make 2013 a memorable year for all!

The January 3rd meeting will be very exciting!  In addition to the usual agenda of announcements and sign-up activities, there will be an open board meeting at the conclusion of the regular meeting. The board usually meets before the January meeting, however, prior commitments for the holidays prevented that from happening.   As a result, we will take the opportunity at this meeting to hear your input.

A tentative calendar for next year has been sketched out.  Copies will be available at the meeting.  We will fill in activities and program information and publish a more complete calendar in February.

In the coming year, the board and I look forward to connecting with all of our guild members in a meaningful way.  We have so much to share and learn together.

Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday season,  

Barbara L.
